  • Facilitate university-wide and school-level assessment processes;
  • Provide data and interpretation to external constituencies on issues related to the University;
  • Provide advice to university constituencies on matters of strategic planning and evaluation;
  • Monitor national trends in higher education;
  • Develop and maintain an annual research agenda to inform recurring decision needs of the institution;
  • Oversee institutional reporting in response to questionnaires and other non-routine requests for information from state, federal, and other external agencies;
  • Perform additional institutional research duties that may become necessary to further the goals of the University.
